We leave Egypt in about a week and a half. On the way back to Ithaca, we have a layover in London that should allow us to spend about six hours in the city. Jeremy and I have gone into London before on a layover so we know the drill with the tube and the HobNobs and the prices that look about right until you realize they're in pounds not dollars, etc. This time around, I think we want to visit the Tower of London. Has anyone been there and loved/hated it? Anything we should know that isn't on their official website? (But I am already well versed in everything Alison Weir has ever wrote on the subject, thanks.)
Is the London Eye worth it? There is a 4.5-year-old in the house who loves Ferris Wheels.
And in case we have some extra time, does anyone know of a park near the Tower, or near another tube stop, where the kids can run around like crazy before we get back on a plane to cross the Atlantic?
